Over the last week, I've noticed a few different recipes for ice cream bread and just had to give it a try myself. Admittedly, I was a skeptic at first...how can you make bread with only two ingredients - ice cream being one of them?! Well, after mixing up our own concoction, we found out about 40 minutes later, it IS possible and quite tasty.
We made two different kinds, strawberry and chocolate. For the strawberry bread, we used strawberry ice cream, flour and 1 cup of fresh strawberries. For the chocolate bread, we used chocolate ice cream, flour and 1/2 cup chocolate chips. Everyone liked both flavors, but the chocolate had a much stronger flavor.
Ice cream bread is yummy served as is or would make a great base for a dessert such as strawberry shortcake!
This recipe makes one loaf and from what I've read, will work best with high quality, full-fat ice cream.
2 cups of your favorite ice cream, softened
1 1/2 cups self-rising flour
Additional ingredients to mix in (optional):
Preheat oven to 350.
Spray 8x4 or 9x5 loaf pan, set aside.
In a medium bowl mix softened ice cream and flour together until combined. Mix in any additional ingredients.
Pour into the loaf and smooth out if needed.
